Unlikely they'll have on shelf- might be wise to pre warn them- send them a snap even.
My 4th set of replacements are behaving so far :)

My Qasqai is under 2yrs old.
The roof rail cap were replaced during year 1.
Yet again they have deteriorated. Dealer notified.
This must be a manufacturing fault.

My 4th set of replacements have lasted so far; this fault must have cost Nissan
or their cap manufacturers hundreds of thousands.

Early on at my first end cap change, they also had to remove roof lining as the
procedure then was to change whole roof rail. Current procedure will be much cheaper for them ;)

I asked my dealer if I could have faulty ones back, so I could get a paint shop to refurbish, but they have
to send old ones back to Nissan.

Any idea's how long it takes for Nissan to agree for the rail ends to be replaced? Been a week now heard nothing.
